It would be great to have speech reco integrated into Sugar and this proposal covers much of the back-end. However, there is a gap between the ability to recognize commands and having Sugar execute upon those commands. I am particularly worried about the Sugar views, which don't yet have support for keyboard short cuts in part because they are using a non-standard graphics framework. I hope that the project doesn't get rendered obsolete because of this current deficiency in Sugar itself. --Walter 12:05, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

In reference to the keyboard shortcuts for sugar views, I am a little confused. As far as I know, there are keyboard shortcuts F1-4, to switch between home and other views. But yes there are no keyboard shortcuts for launching an activity. There is a terminal command though "sugar-launch <activity_name>" but that too is inefficient because you have to type in the full bundle id. So if I want to launch my ListenAndSpell activity I have to type at the terminal: "sugar-launch in.seeta.ListenAndSpell" And if I want the command "sugar-launch ListenAndSpell" to work, I can simply search the string "ListenAndSpell" in the bundle ids of all the installed activites. -- Chirag Jain
